Not only this hit TV show is a favorite internet trend just like online poker, Justin Bieber, and even Candy Crush, news have been constant for this “spontaneous singing” high school and young adult personas. Whether you are on Facebook, YouTube, playing World of Warcraft or partypoker;, listening to Zedd in Soundcloud, or viewing reblogs of Liam Hemsworth in Tumblr, Glee will always be referenced in some way or another. Just like how poker can be easily learned online now, how Justin Bieber’s latest song can be so hated and loved all at the same time, and how the movie Pitch Perfect has become successful because of showcasing YouTube-inspired mashups, Glee is part of an ongoing culture that is staying still in this generation. So while you play a game of Omaha Hi-Lo or No Limit Hold’em, or writing about Naya Rivera in your blog, let’s see the latest on what’s happening on Glee.
Guess Who’s Coming Back
It’s not just Amber Riley who will be back to help out the New Directions. Kate Hudson will return with some revenge to dish out, that’s according to an article by Perez Hilton, showbiz gossip extraordinaire. As Perez puts it, “We knew we were in for a treat when we discovered that Amber Riley and her powerhouse vocal stylingz would be back on Glee this week for its new episode, Wonder-ful, to help the rest of her friends at New Directions pay tribute to the legendary Stevie Wonder, but we were NOT anticipating that returning guest star Kate Hudson would be back with some SERIOUSLY SOULFUL VENGEANCE herself!”
Friends Say He Looks Great
Who is? Cory Monteith, of course. NY Daily News web reporter Zayda Rivera headlines, “the actor was seen Friday with girlfriend Lea Michelle after finishing his second stint in treatment for substance addiction.” Monteith and his co-star/girlfriend Lea Michelle were both spotted in Los Angeles and were all smiles. The Glee star “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his rep told People in late March as reported by Rivera. “Sending out big love to everyone,” Monteith tweeted. “Thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me!”
And On The Next Episode
If you are a fan of classics sung by Stevie Wonder, this upcoming May 2 episode of Glee will be a treat. As reported by HollywoodLife.com;, FOX released the following to describe the episode. “The members of New Directions take on the greatest hits of music icon Stevie Wonder. Meanwhile, Artie receives news that could affect his future and his mom (guest star Katey Sagal). In New York, Rachel prepares for her ‘Funny Girl’ callback in the all-new Wonder-ful episode of GLEE airing Thursday, May 2.”
All that said, most of the songs of the new episode have now been released and Perez Hilton has it all tagged in his aforementioned article. Enjoy.
This just in, Cory Monteith has checked into rehab for a “substance addiction”, although we are not quite sure which substance. Checking in last night, Monteith has been to rehab before for the same addiction when he was 19. In 2011 he told us,
“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too, but for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and
go after it”.
After these inspiring words and ongoing smile, it’s surprising that this shocking event has occurred, but then again it really shows how much we don’t know about our favorite cast.
A rep for Monteith also stated: “[Monteith] has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Voluntarily, graciously, privacy; he really is a kind-hearted guy.
And does this mean Monteith may be missing out on some filming?
That’s all for now and our kindest regards go out to Cory. We wish you a speedy recovery and are very proud of you.
It’s the question on everyone’s mind; well, at least on Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly’s mind.
I would love to wish you all a gleeful start to the year and I hope your holidays were enjoyable. Also a big happy birthday to Naya Rivera (Santana), who turned 27 on 12th January, Becca Tobin (Kitty), who on 18th January turned 28 and a huge Happy Birthday to Miss Heather Morris who will be turning 26 on 1st February. Send them your gleeful wishes on their twitter accounts. (@NayaRivera & @becbecbobec)
But to refer to the headline, recently at the Television Critics Association, Mr Reilly, when asked about the status of Glee’s Season 5, answered with:
“Yes, that is a real possibility. We’re going to negotiate now for the fifth season and beyond, so we’re talking about those things now.”
So although not completely confirmed, it could be a definite that we are all going to be watching a season 5 (and beyond) of FOX’s hit show.
Regardless of the awkward scheduling this season and the divided story lines from Ohio to New York, Fox is extremely happy and by the sounds of it, gleeful, when it comes to a new season. There could be a few minor changes in the location though, explains Reilly,
“I wonder- could it, and should it, naturally move [to New York City]?I have to talk to Ryan and see where he’s at right now.”
It could be a good idea with so many more core characters set to graduate at the end of this season, but would Glee still be Glee without McKinley?
“[Season 4] was ultimately what became of the spinoff talk: Let’s do it within the franchise.”, explained Kevin Reilly on Jan 8th, “I do think if we can continue to follow a broad array of characters, it’s like life, you have relationships, you have friends, they go off, their lives go on and you get together and, maybe you maintain a friendship, maybe you lose distance. I think we can do that within this world of people you followed”
Mr Rielly was also keen to point out that what lies ahead will certainly involve cast members such as Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera.
“Some of them have moved on to other things or wanted to move on to other things, but they love the show, and this gives them a chance to come back and do an arc. It would be fun to continue that morphing.”
But as said by wetpaint.com, “Is this a sign that Fox doesn’t love this season’s new McKinley students?”
Well, let us know any thoughts and comments you have about this “to be confirmed” plan for Glee and any ideas on Season 5 storylines.
The ConfessedGleek Project is based on The Glee Project (as you can tell). Only on our show you will be able to audition with any talents you have, whether it be singing, dancing, playing an instrument, even down to creating or drawing a piece of artwork! Any god given talent you have you can share with us in The ConfessedGleek Project!
Entries will be taken in within the September month. At the end of the month all videos will be assessed and I will be choosing the final contestants (how many final contestants will depend on how many overall entries we get in). The chosen contestants will then be announced on the 1st of October and the competition will start from there.
Rules will be explained to those who are chosen. But as shows go, this is a fun, web-based project!
I hope to see many videos coming in and lots of ConfessedGleeks getting involved! Let your powers shine!!
Please watch the video below to find out how to join in:
